Now all this is changed, and close by the camp a busy, populous village, sadly wanting, by the way, in everything that is picturesque, has sprung into existence. The earthworks in their present form extend for upwards of 320 yards in an irregular semicircle, both ends of which run down almost to the edge of the low cliffs on the sea-shore, enclosing an area of somewhat more than three acres. The original defences con¬ sisted of three parallel banks of unequal height, though on the eastern side only the innermost of these remains.
